In the original version of Reaper: Pilot the role of Andi was played by Nikki Reed. All her scenes were eventually re-shot with Missy Peregrym as Andi. Though, there existed a version of the pilot episode in which Reed can be seen as Andi. See more »
Reaper was much much better than I thought it was going to be; consistently funny and not predictable in the way that most sitcoms are. It is a regular on my TiVo list now, I can only hope that the network doesn't kill it off for some lame reality show replacement. If you get a chance, watch it, it is the rare network show that is funny without resorting to being dumb. It's so strange to actually have something decent to watch on regular TV! Excellent casting, especially for the Devil.
Oh, and the person who was reminded of Shaun of the Dead - the unlikely loser hero with the fat maladjusted buddy is a comedy standby. Shaun of the Dead borrows from some of the best as well - Ghostbusters, Army of Darkness, etc....But the comparison to Shaun of the dead is really a compliment - watch Reaper folks, you won't regret it, and you will actually laugh for a change.
Still can't believe that this is on Network TV.....it's too good, someone must have made a mistake.
